PewDiePie sabotages KSI’s Among Us imposter run

During a round of their collaboration broadcast, PewDiePie became suspicious of the the 27-year-old and thought that he might be the imposter. “The pressure’s on. Do your f**cking best, KSI. Do your f**cking best,” he said.

Not long after, he turned a corner and actually ran into KSI just as he was killing another player.  After catching the content creator as the imposter, the star broke down into hysterics of laughter as he reported the body. Trying to flip it on Pewds, the YouTuber screamed “IT WAS PEWDIEPIE!” Laughing, he responded, “It was KSI!”

“WHAT! How is it me?! Did you see me kill?” JJ exclaimed. “Yeah, I saw you kill,” the 30-year-old replied as the whole room began to breaking into laughter. “Lies! It’s lies!” the musician said as a last ditch effort.

Unfortunately for KSI, the whole room wasn’t buying his defense and ejected him from the game, giving the group a victory. The moment was entertaining to say the least, and a prime example of an imposter run gone wrong.

The star shouldn’t feel too bad though, as imposters being caught in the act is fairly common and happens to the best of them. Popular YouTuber Grumbae created a hilarious compilation example of this that went viral.

Fans expressed their concern for Twitch streamer Sykkuno last night, as he was seen becoming visibly tearful during a game of Among Us with Valkyrae and DisguisedToast, before abruptly ending the livestream.

Update – 11/23/20

Sykkono has addressed concerned fans in a separate stream, saying: “Sometimes you have some issues going on in life and I probably shouldn’t have streamed that day…It wasn’t anything anybody did, it wasn’t even a chat honestly.” He said, “It was just a tough day,” before adding that he’d rather not give any details on his stream.

Original article

Sykunno, real name Thomas, is a 28-year-old streamer, with a huge following on both YouTube and Twitch, with 1.73 million subscribers and 1.59 million followers respectively.

He has risen to stardom on Twitch especially in 2020, partly in thanks to the growth of Among Us, and has become one of the fastest-growing content creators on the platform. So it isn’t surprising that, when he appeared to become emotional during his November 21 livestream, his fans quickly jumped to his defense.

What happened on Sykunno’s stream?

It all started during a livestream Sykunno did on Minecraft earlier in the day with, among others, fellow streamers and friends Valkyrae and DisguisedToast. “The vibes were off from the beginning,” one viewer said, with other players “spamming” the chat and “backseating” (telling him how to play the game) so much, that Sykunno had to put the chat in sub-only mode several times.

The viewer added that “it was obvious that Sykunno was annoyed/upset with the people in the chat” in his previous stream before he moved on to streaming Among Us.

As crewmate in the initial rounds, Sykunno kept getting killed straight away, while as imposter, he was caught out straight away as his fellow imposter “framed” him for the death of another player.

In her own stream of the game, Valkyrae can be heard apologizing to Sykunno after noticing that he was upset. However, her stream was later deleted.

Sykunno can then be seen looking visibly dejected in a later round where, after joking that he could’ve secretly vented and killed the player, he is voted out by the rest of the team.

When he protested the choice, Valkyrae joked that he shouldn’t “pretend to be sad after pretending to be an imposter”, while DisguisedToast jokingly asked if Sykunno had “learned his lesson” yet. A reupload of the stream was posted to YouTube.

Rae, Toast and the rest of them then jokingly yelled at Sykunno for making jokes and “memeing” during the game, to which he responded: “I was just trying to make everyone laugh.”

Streamer DisguisedToast, who lives with Sykunno, was also part of the stream.

During the next round, he keeps his camera off for most of it and appears to be crying, staying quiet with little commentary. When speaking during the emergency meeting to confirm his location, his voice cracks and he says: “I don’t think I should talk anymore.”

When the game ends, he abruptly ends his stream, leaving fans and friends worried.

Fans start hugsforsykunno trend

Following the worrying stream, concerned fans showed their support for the gamer by posting Tweets with the hashtag #HugsforSykunno. The hashtag soon gained so much traction that it began trending in the US.

Some fans also turned on Valkyrae and Toast, accusing them of making Sykunno cry.

Other users argued that Sykunno wouldn’t want fans to be targeting Valkyrae, with one fan Tweeting: If u cared about Sykkuno, you would know that he would not want anybody to give BS to his friends.”

Over on YouTube, fan Rafael Henrique argued that Sykunno was upset following a hard day, not because of Rae and Toast.

Over on YouTube, one fan pointed out that “Toast and Rae clearly didn’t want to hurt him. You could hear it in their voices that they were just messing around”, while another fan noted: “When you’re having a bad day, even the most natural of interactions (meme or not) can take a huge toll and feel so overwhelming.”

Sykkuno later Tweeted thanking fans for their support as well as requesting that they don’t target his friends Rae and Toast for allegedly “making him cry”.
